Anti-collision automobile radars are becoming an increasingly common feature in cars. Present
systems operate in the 77 GHz band with a forecast
to increase the frequency of operation above the 90 GHz. The safety benefits of this technology
are undubious, but for car manufacturers it is a
challenge to integrate the radar without degrading its performance and keeping the vehicle
The solution is to design radomes that allow to conceal the radar, keep the car styling and do not
degrade the radar performance. All this with the
additional requirement that the solution has to be valid for mass production.
The specific tasks to be developed during the Ph. D are:
- Material characterization techniques at millimeter wave frequencies.
- Application of conformal optics approach for the optimization of radomes.
- Use of metamaterials in radome design.
- Analysis of the effect of manufacturing errors.
- Development of measuring techniques for radome characterization.
The candidate should have a background in electromagnetics, experience in the use of lab
equipment at microwave frequencies (automatic network analysis), a knowledge of
electromagnetic simulation software such as HFSS,CST Studio or FEKO.
